£150 needed for a large washing machine
From Winchester - 35 years old.
C is a single mum to 5 kids, 2 of which are disabled. The family live off benefits which are currently reduced to £41 per week whilst the 16 year old is assessed for Personal Independence Payment. We have helped with food and an Acts 435 donation for electricity, but their washing machine has also just broken and is irreparable. Due to the number of kids and the needs of those who are disabled this needs to be a larger than average machine. We will be making up the difference in cost to get the most appropriate one.
